FREE Music and Arts Event
Belmont Porchfest
Saturday September 7, 11-6pm
   (rain date: TBD)

Belmont's Porchfest is a celebration of community through arts and music performed by your friends and neighbors in yards and on porches throughout Belmont. Bike to a friend's house to hear a klezmer band or host a circus show on your front lawn! 

Porchfest happens the Saturday after Labor Day. 

Hosts and Performers register here July 1 - July 31st.  Hosts can perform on their own veranda or welcome an acquaintance to perform at their home. Which means Performers can perform on their own porch or light up a buddy's.  If you are ISO a porch or performer, we will do our best to hook you up.  We prioritize Belmont performers but welcome folks from all over.

NEW THIS YEAR: We will not be able to accept late registrants.  

What if there is rain in the forecast?  

A little rain won't shut us down but other conditions may.  The rain date is the next day.  We will decide whether to reschedule by 10 a.m. on September 7th and post that info on the HOME page of the website.

In the event of a thunderstorm or other adverse weather conditions, Belmont Porchfest urges all hosts, performers, and audience members to prioritize their safety and that of others. An adverse weather event marks the end of Porchfest.
